MLS institutes team training moratorium through March 15
MLS instituted a team training moratorium for all of its clubs beginning on Friday, March 13 and running through Sunday, March 15 as the league continues to review training protocols to ensure a safe environment for players and staff in the wake of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
The training moratorium applies to first-team trainings, reserve teams and academies.
The communication of the moratorium to clubs came on the same day that MLS suspended the 2020 season for a period of 30 days.
During the training moratorium, MLS players are expected to remain in each club’s respective market and they are permitted to work out independently should they voluntarily choose to do so.
In addition to the MLS regular season, several soccer competitions and tournaments have been postponed, including Concacaf (Olympic qualifying and Champions League) and U.S. national team events, USL Championship, Generation adidas Cup for academies and eMLS Cup.
